    I’ve never had straight teeth and my parents never got me braces when I was a kid. That being said, I’ve actually been thinking about getting braces now that I’m an adult. Of the things you listed here, I think that the budget is one of the more important parts. I’ll have to check to see what I have in my savings since I know the procedure can cost a bit.

      Excellent idea, Caden. It would also be good to speak to your provider about the costs associated so you have a plan.

    Hello Caroline. Great Info!

    Thanks for the information. I ask one question for you. Can I eat with braces on?

      You definitely can eat with braces on, Sean. There are definitely food considerations to be aware of, as some items can damage your braces.
